World wide web is here

IMAGINE my delight to read that in five short years businesses and homes in town will finally have access to superfast broadband.

This ray of light in a digital darkness comes as Central Government gave Lincs County Council the go ahead.

Of course the only problem is that in five years time technology will have moved on again we’ll all finally get fast broadband just as the internet fills up and everyone moves onto the next big thing.

Of course if TV and films are anything to go by then by 2017 we will all be in silver jump suits and driving round in flying cars.

At least the traffic problems that plague us here in Gainsborough should be solved by then. Either that or the machines will have risen up and taken over the town like something from Terminator. Still they can’t possibly be worse at running the place than the current lot.
